Today......a spot of tea with wonder woman.

Today I've decided that I need to stop second guessing myself so much.

How many times do we think that we are incapable of doing something?
Me?  Quite a bit.
I don't actually think I am an idiot, but I just think I can't do something.
I need someone to give me the answer.
Someone to help.
I am incapable of solving the problem.
The correct solution??  Not from me!!!

The definition for the word incapable is:

in·ca·pa·ble  [in-key-puh-buhl]

1.  not capable.
2.  not having the necessary ability, qualification, or strength to perform some specified act or function: As an administrator, he is simply incapable.
3.  without ordinary capability; incompetent.
4.  a thoroughly incompetent person, especially one of defective mentality.

5.  incapable of,

a.  not having the ability, qualification, or strength for (a specified act or function).
b.  not open to; not susceptible to or admitting: These materials are incapable of exact measurement.
c.  legally unqualified for.
1585–95;  < Late Latin incapābilis. 

in·ca·pa·bil·i·ty, in·ca·pa·ble·ness, noun
in·ca·pa·bly, adverb

1. Incapable, incompetent, inefficient, unable  are applied to a person or thing that is lacking in ability, preparation, or power for whatever is to be done.

Unable  usually refers to a temporary condition of inability to do some specific thing: unable to relax, to go to a concert. 2.  impotent, unqualified.

1.  able.

OK, have decided that I don't fit that definition and that maybe I am not incapable.

How many of us feel that we need to be 
I think we all do at times.
Not just women fall into this trap.  Men sometimes think they have to solve all the problems of the world as well.
I don't have to be a wonder woman, but, I am not incapable either!!
What kind of tea bag are you??
Earl Grey?  Lipton?  Tetley?
Doesn't make any difference.
I think we all have an inner strength that can be tapped into.
We just need to show some initiative.

This week I let the store clerk at the health food store push me around and talk me out of getting something I had researched and wanted Sam to try.
She made me second guess my decision.......what I knew to be right.
Today I am going back and getting what I originally went in there to get.
I am a capable woman.
I am an informed mother.
I am a
